Here's a neat idea for those Legos laying around the house: Use them to make a drone.

Flybrix created a DIY drone-making kit that lets ordinary Lego bricks take flight. It comes in two versions: A basic package ($189), which works with an app, and the deluxe version ($249). which includes a hand-held controller.

Both are a few hundred dollars cheaper than most DIY drone kits in the market.

The kits include 56 small previously-owned Lego pieces collected from Lego wholesellers. The move is part of the company's effort to make an eco-friendly toy that keeps Legos out of landfills.
